There are usually two main events each year, one based in the U.K. and one overseas in Europe.

Additionally, the Society’s A.G.M. in January is also a social event, currently held at a hotel in Oxfordshire with many members staying overnight. We often engage a speaker to entertain the members after lunch, or alternatively put on a film show.

The most recent event was the EMGS Derbyshire Peak District Tour, held in September 2021. Please see a video of the event below:
